    Who uses crit tokens?

    At my local gaming pub, space is at a premium. We often wind up stacking cards or making piles of cards on small fold out tables next to the gaming table. It's super easy to miss a crit card in the mess.

    Yep. The 2.0 crits are more important to track, and have lots of chain effects now.
  3. I haven't gotten a chance to play my Skurrg since the points change, due to snowmageddon. Are they that good now?

    Always. Sometimes they even remind me of the crit effects!

    ARC's dual cards

    "During battle, the craft's S-foils opened to expose heat sinks and radiators to help cool the ship," https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Aggressive_ReConnaissance-170_starfighter Give the ARC some kind of heat based mechanic? Would that be too much like old BattleTech?
  6. Thank you for saving us from having to use the official app.

    Hyperspace - is there a list better than Tripsilons?

    To be more specific, we do see the shuttles shuttling. The technical reason we don't see the B-Wing fight in ROTJ, despite being present at the battle is because the models were difficult to film . We never see the Lambda or Ups anywhere near a dogfight. (I'm sure I'm missing the scene in TLJ where Poe flies an Upsilon against TIE fighters...) Regardless, I don't like 4 primary attack dice on any ships. I think FFG did good in reducing the Phantom to 3 primary, and I find it ironic that the two ships left with a 4 dice primary attack are a shuttle and a cargo ship.

    Yep. So is the Upsilon a shuttle converted to a gunship? If so, why is it primarily used for shuttling people around?

    Thank god for bleach and whiskey cocktails.

    That's a gunship, not a cargo plane.

    The Ups is like the Lambda from ROTJ. It exists to move characters from scene A to scene B. I can understand giving it guns* to make it playable in a miniatures game, but 4 dice primary seems overkill to me. *While both models have guns, we never see them fire in the films, not the Lambda at least, I don't recall the Ups ever firing either.

    Here's my question. Why are cargo vessels and personnel shuttles the most heavily gunned ships in the game? 🤔

    These threads feel like the threads we had over Dengaroo and Parattani and FSR and etc. Some tactics, some list building, and a lot of *******.

    Sure. I'm just skeptical that FFG is capable of engineering the tripsilon squad to boost sales. I think, like the Jumpmaster, it's a convergence of card abilities and FFG are probably reading these threads going "Aw, ****, here we go again."

    Hyperspace is doing great to open up the meta. 😩

    The upgrades and ships have existed in roughly the same way since 1.0: Collision Detector, Hyperwave Comm Scanner, Dormitz's ability. So at the risk of taking a possible joke post seriously, I'd say no. Far more likely that a B or C rank list is rising to A rank with the 2.0 changes nerfing previous A rank lists out of the competition.

    I'd have to buy 2 more Ups and two conversion kits (I don't have any FO conversion kit) to field it. That's a fair bit of cash for a list that may be a flash in the pan. But then again it might be the next Dengaroo and dominate the meta until the next point adjustment...

    A big thank you to the 3rd party squad builders.

    My personal beef is that the official app is a pain to fiddle with. Multiple nested scroll bars, no preview info, and the PDF exported does not have any information besides the point costs. I much prefer the drop down menus of YASB 2.0, the ease of switching lists and factions, and the printed squad list includes as much or as little information as I like.

    If FFG want us to use their app, they need to get on the ball.

    They're up!!!

    Lowered points, added a gunner slot. I'm going to have a ball.

    Skurrg got a gunner slot. My precious Skurrg.

    Illegal Squad at Phoenix / Trip Upsilon (no relation)

    Then go watch some streams and come to your own conclusions. Tell us why the list is beast mode now. Sometimes you have to react to the meta without fully understanding the whys. I bet some number cruncher will figure out the details to your satisfaction before too long. Until then it sounds like triple Ups is a list to watch out for. *Edit* But to take a guess, I'd say it's that 1.0's top meta are all nerfed, and now the second bests, that were suppressed by top beast lists, are floating to the top.
